Scriptures 禱告經文:
Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.
(Psalm 127:1 ESV)
若不是耶和華建造房屋, 建造的人就枉然勞力; 若不是耶和華看守城池, 看守的人就枉然警醒。

興起發光;因為你的光已經來到、耶和華的榮耀發現照耀你;看哪、黑暗遮蓋大地、幽暗遮蓋萬民;耶和華卻要顯現照耀你、他的榮耀要現在你身上;萬國要來就你的光、君王要來就你發現的光輝。(以賽亞書60:1-3)

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn. (‭‭Isaiah‬‭60:1-3 ‭NIV‬‬)‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

親愛的天父,
感謝祢差遣主耶穌來到世上,為著我們的罪被釘死在十字架上,惟有基督在我們還作罪人的時候為我們死,神的愛就此向我們顯明了。這是一個黑暗的世代,雖然黑暗遮蓋大地,幽暗遮蓋萬民,主耶穌,祢是世上的光,跟隨祢走的,就不在黑暗裡走,必要得著生命的光。感謝主,祢就是賜人生命的主,有了祢就有生命,不認識祢的,就沒有生命,活在黑暗罪惡裡;因祢對我們的愛和憐憫,帶領我們從黑暗進入光明,祢的出現確如晨光,照亮我們坐在黑暗中死蔭裡的人,把我們的腳引到平安的路上,得著無限的盼望和祝福!

Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending Jesus Christ to this world to die on the cross for our sin. Christ died for us while we are still sinners to demonstrate the love of God for us. Although in this generation, the land is covered by darkness and nations live under darkness, the Lord Jesus is the light and whoever follows Him will not walk in the darkness but will live in the light. Thank you Lord for giving us life. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not believe in the Son of God does not have life but live in sin and darkness. You lead us out of darkness into light by your love and mercy. Your presence is like the morning sun shining its light on those who are in the dark valley of death. You guide our foot steps and lead us to the right path. You bless us and give us hope.

慈愛的主,香港是一個功利的城市,人與人的關係常常建立在利益中,人生的目標就是追求金錢、名譽、地位、學位和自我的滿足。主啊,祢才是我們唯一的滿足,祢是道路、真理和生命,若不藉著祢,沒有人能到父那裏去。我們為香港並中國的教育發展禱告,香港的教育的改革和發展常以成績導向,只重視好成績,好成績才是好學生,帶來老師和學生沉重的壓力和重擔!

Our loving God, Hong Kong is a city where its people are striving for financial gains and success. The relationship among people is often based on self interests. The goal of life is the pursuit of money, honor, status, degree and self-satisfaction. Lord, You are our only fulfillment, You are the way, and the truth, and the life, and no one can come to the Father except through you. We pray for the development of education in Hong Kong and China. The reform and development of education in Hong Kong and China are often guided by students’ achievements. Students are recognized only by their score. Good grades equal good students. This has brought heavy pressure and burden on teachers and students.

慈愛的主,求祢憐憫我們,賜福予教育局官員和各教育工作者,開啟他們屬靈的眼睛,使他們能按祢的旨意施行教育。知識叫人自高自大,惟有愛心能造就人,求天父祝福和帶領香港和中國教育的發展,興起更多基督徒的教育工作者,培育出愛神愛人、有學識和有屬靈品格的下一代,他們願意獻身社會和教會,為主作美好的見證,成為時代的明燈。

Our loving God, bless the officials of the Education Bureau and the educators. Open their spiritual eyes so that they will carry out their responsibilities according to your will. Knowledge breeds arrogance and only love can build people up. Father, we pray that you will lead the development of education in Hong Kong and China and raise up more Christian educators to nurture a new generation with godly characters who will love God and love others and are willing to devote themselves to serve the society and the church and be a good witness for the Lord and light for the world in this age.

主啊,祢的光已經來到,祢要照亮黑暗的大地,在這末世的時代,祢的光要彰顯祢更大的榮耀!求主祢復興這世代的孩子,復興每一個校園,讓祢的救恩臨在每一位孩子的生命,讓相信主耶穌成為校園的潮流,成為每一位孩子生命的祝福,因為唯有祢才可以救我們脫離罪惡的綑綁,使我們得著真正的自由,過豐盛的生命!

Lord, Your light has come and it has cast out the darkness of the world. In this last age, You light will manifest Your greater glory. Revive the children of this generation, revive every campus, let your salvation and blessings come to every child so that Christianity will become the trend on campus because only You has the power to set us free from the bondage of sin and to give us true freedom and abundant life.

主啊,不是倚靠勢力,不是倚靠才能,仍是倚靠祢的靈方能成事。我們單單倚靠祢,離了祢我們不能作甚麼,祢是我們的力量,是我們的詩歌,也是我們的拯救!求祢復興各校長和老師的生命,將教育的主權交給祢,按祢的教訓和警戒,教養孩子,將孩子完完全全帶到主面,得著救恩,使他們一生走在主的道路上,作主門徒,為主發光!
奉主耶穌基督的名祈求,阿們!

Lord, Your work is done not by might nor by power but by your Spirit. We rely on You alone and apart from You we can not do anything. You are our strength, our song and also our salvation! Revive the life of the school principals and teachers, and may the sovereignty over education be returned back to You. Let every child be taught your ways and be brought back to You completely. Let every child receive salvation and follow the Lord all the days of their life. Let them be the Lord’s disciples and shine for the Lord.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen!
